 Mined!  A Wonderful Escape And Its Heroic Sequel.  On September 30th 1915, a British trench near Zillebeke was mined by the Germans and almost destroyed.  Lance Corporal C. Leadbeater, of the 1/5th Battalion Lincolnshire Regiment (TF) was in charge of the listening post at the end of the trench at the time.  The violence of the explosion blew him bodily over the parapet and inflicted severe injuries, but, notwithstanding his sufferings, he crawled back to the ruined trench, and, collecting his men, ordered them to open rapid fire in anticipation of a German attempt to secure the mine crater.  This prompt action saved the situation.  The German infantry faltered and the attack was not pressed home.  Leadbeater remained with his men until ordered to go to the dressing station.  He was awarded the D.C.M.

How Sergeant Major Croft, Single Handed, Disposed Of A Party Of Germans.


How Sergeant Major Croft, Single Handed, Disposed Of A Party Of Germans.

While the 5th Dragoon Guards were in the trenches near Zillebeke, at the end of February 1915, the German snipers in a wood were becoming a serious nuisance. Sergeant Croft made up his mind to get rid of this, and one evening he made his way slowly and cautiously through the wood. Suddenly he heard voices quite close to him, and there just ahead of him was a trench in which was a party of Germans. Croft had brought with him a couple of revolvers, and drawing these, he took cover behind a tree and began blazing away at the astonished Germans. Shrieks and cries told him that at least some of these shots had not been wasted, and soon the enemy, evidently under the impression that a big party had surprised them, abandoned the trench and ran off to their own line. From that time the 5th Dragoon Guards ceased to be troubled by snipers in this direction.

Lieut. Dimmer Repairing a Machine-Gun While Exposed to the Fire of the Advancing Prussian Guard by Allan Stewart (P)


Lieut. Dimmer Repairing a Machine-Gun While Exposed to the Fire of the Advancing Prussian Guard by Allan Stewart (P)

As the Prussian Guard advanced in massed formation from the cover of a wood at Klein Zillebeke on 12th November 1914, the British machine-guns mowed them down with a storm of bullets. But the gun which Lieutenant John Henry Stephen Dimmer, of 2nd Battalion Kings Royal Rifle Corps, was working, suddenly jammed. With great bravery he climbed onto the emplacement to put it in order, and while doing so a rifle bullet struck him in the jaw. He continued, however, to work the gun until it jammed once more, and while putting it in order he was hit in the shoulder. After again getting the gun to work, his injured shoulder was struck by three shrapnel-bullets, but he most gallantly continued working it until it was destroyed by shell-fire. His magnificent courage and tenacity were rewarded with the VC.
